    Okay - I need to save up some dough and try this out for myself! There's the perfect place for RC planes here.


    Durdham Downs! And this is just one tiny little bit! Behind this picture is two miles of this stuff - flat as a pancake, and very few trees.

    Yeah - it's weird. It's a park, but it's not a park. Just a huge bit of the city which they never built on and now will never be allowed to.

    Here's what I found;

    In 1676 the Society acquired the Manor of Clifton, then all open country, which included 220 acres of Clifton Down bordering the Avon Gorge.

    Almost 200 years later the neighbouring Manor of Henbury, which included Durdham Down, came on the market. The Society agreed with the Corporation of Bristol that if the Corporation would buy it, the Society would join with the Corporation in dedicating 440 acres for the use and enjoyment of the citizens of Bristol in perpetuity.


    I used to take balsa models there as a kid - nothing wrong with that, but RC is the only way to make full and proper use of the place.

    Especially with summer coming up - then all the girls sunbathe round there for an added bonus!

    Yes, you're married, but your aren't BLIND! ;)

    Med, I remember when I lived in Hockwold, we used to go watch an R/C club flying their planes at RAF Feltwell. It still had the grass runways and alot of space at the time. That was 20 years ago, so I don't know if it has changed since then. If memory serves correctly, I think Feltwell was a Lancaster base. The runways were HUGE!

    Great shots Les and a lovely model. two questions for you
    1. How did you manage to fly it and take the pics at the same time have you got an prehensile appendage we don't know about. :D
    2. Have you thought about fitting one of these 8) (I was at Duxford airfield today and they had an Air-cobra in the workshops for servicing)

    Was going to a helicopter school in Texas 2 years ago. I decided to get checked out at a local FBO so I could go flying on the weekends. To the south of the airport I was flying out of was a place called "Joe Pool Lake." One Saturday I took off out of Grand Prarie, and stayed low over Joe Pool. Well to my surprise, there were a lot of house boats with a lot of girls who like to show what they had to low-flying aircraft! DAMM, I wish I had a camera! God Bless Texas! :tongue1:

    A 20 stone German passing you in the opposite direction is enough to put you off you flapjacks for life :shock: and his missus was about the same size too.
